On Tuesday evening, the Annecy Animation Festival in France played host to the highly anticipated debut of “The Day the Earth Blew Up: A Looney Tunes Movie”. Director Pete Browngardt and Warner Bros.

Animation president Sam Register were in attendance to introduce the film, which promises to delight audiences with its classic Looney Tunes charm.

The screening was met with laughter and applause, particularly during scenes showcasing the duo’s humorous childhoods and job-seeking escapades. Browngardt, known for his work on Uncle Grandpa, expressed his excitement about presenting the film at Annecy, marking his fifth attendance at the festival. He praised the team’s dedication to the project, stating, “This film is a labor of love… we’ve poured our hearts and souls into it.”

Register commended Browngardt’s vision, noting that Annecy is the perfect venue for the premiere due to the importance of the Looney Tunes characters.

The film is remarkable as the first fully animated Looney Tunes feature slated for theatrical release, following Warner Bros.’ decision to shelve the hybrid live-action and CGI film “Coyote vs. Acme”. With its 2D animation and classic humor, “The Day the Earth Blew Up” promises to delight Looney Tunes fans and animation enthusiasts alike.
